PUBG patch 1.2 notes

Runic Power PUBG Mobile

The Runic Power mode will let you live out your superhero dreams.

Runic Power mode 

PUBG Mobile’s latest game mode allows players to get access to special powers. Choose from three Runes, then collect Rune fragments, and use them to aid you in your fight to become the final winner on the battlefield. 

Runic Power gameplay 

  • Players will choose their Rune energy type on Spawn Island. You will need to choose to bring either the Flame Rune, Arctic Rune, or Wind Rune into the current match.
  • After selecting a rune, you will get 2 skills. The first skill summons an object, and the second skill gives you a boost. Using these skills consumes Rune energy.
  • Rune energy can be obtained in matches.

Rune Abilities

PUBG Mobile Runic Powers

These unique powers could give you the edge needed to grab a win.

Flame Rune:

  • Summon skill – Summons a wheel of flame that rolls forward slowly, dealing burn damage to enemy players it touches.
  • Boost skill – Adds a burning effect to your Ammo for a short time.

Arctic Rune:

  • Summon skill – Summons an ice wall. Each block of the ice wall can be destroyed separately. When the ice wall appears, it will lift up players or vehicles directly above them.
  • Boost skill – Adds a freezing effect to Ammo for a short time. Freezing reduces the effectiveness of healing.

Wind Rune:

  • Summon skill – Summons a semi-transparent shield of wind that reduces the damage of bullets shot from outside the shield.
  • Boost skill – Increases your movement and reload speed.

New Firearm

PUBG Corporation / xFAIRx
The FAMAS has an incredibly fast rate of fire.


  • A new assault rifle that uses 5.56mm Ammo. It can be loaded with 25 rounds, has the fastest Rate of Fire among rifles, and is outstanding in close range firefights.
  • The FAMAS can be equipped with a Muzzle (Rifles), Scope, and Mag (Rifles). There is no foregrip, but it comes with its own bipod that reduces recoil when shooting with it in a prone position.
  • Only appears in the Livik Classic Battle Royale map.

Power Armor Mode

The new Power Armor mode launches in EvoGround on February 5. New high-tech Power Armor has been created on Livik. To create your own set of   Power Armor you must bring Nano Crystals and an Armor Blueprint to the Matrix Base. 

You will have 2 additional chances to respawn yourself or your teammates during a match. Matrix Events will also be available for you to participate in during each match.


  • Teammates can be respawned at research stations. All players can respawn twice. You can choose to respawn yourself or your teammates during a match. Players respawn with basic equipment.

Power Armor

  • Power Armor Chest Piece: Reduces chest damage and increases backpack capacity.
  • Power Armor Arm Piece: Reduces arm damage and increases melee damage.
  • Power Armor Leg Piece: Reduces leg damage and fall damage. Gives a quick dash ability.
  • Assembling the full Power Armor set unlocks its ultimate weapon, the Dragon’s Breath Grenade.

Matrix Events

  • Matrix Event 1: Improved regional supply output.
  • Matrix Event 2: Multiple Matrix airdrops and significantly increased supplies in each airdrop.
  • Matrix Event 3: Life Detectors in research stations are activated and can be used to detect surrounding players.

Metro Royale: Honor Chapter

Metro PUBG Mobile
PUBG Corporation / xFAIRx
Fans of the Metro series will want to take part in this event.
  • Metro Royale: Honor will be available after the game is updated. In keeping with the Season tradition, at the start of a new chapter, your rankings and inventory in Metro Royale will be reset. Fame and NPC Favorability, however, will be retained.
  • New rewards will be available in the latest chapter. Accumulate Honor to get voice packs, outfits, and other permanent rewards!
  • Added new weekly rankings, including Loot and Elimination Rankings.
  • Improved enemy AI from Steel Front and the Cobras to make them more intelligent and challenging.
